REVIEW
Abdelrahman E M Ezzat, Hanna M El-Shenawy
The first true anatomical descriptions of the normal anatomy of the palate and pharynx were published by Von Luschka in 1868, and then in 1935 anatomist James Whillis described pharyngeal sphincter. Later, in 1941 Michael Oldfield noted that the muscular elements of the soft palate have a sling-like function. Although there have been conflicting descriptions of the role of the palatopharyngeus, multiple function such as speech, swallowing, and respiration, it could role in all this function. Although, the palatopharyngeus muscle has many important functions, but it remains the missing muscle that we need to know more about it...

Anatomic variations in the biliary tract are common and can cause difficulties when a cholecystectomy is performed. One of the most common ones are hepaticocholecystic ducts and Luschka ducts, connecting the gallbladder or its bed to the bile ducts but distinction between these two types of ducts can be difficult. We do discuss here the differences between these anatomical variations, their origin and their clinical implications. These aberrant ducts may go unnoticed and may require further complementary procedures in case of postoperative biliary leakage...

Although laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become a gold standard in treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis, it is associated with higher risk of intraoperative lesions and primarily lesions of biliary ducts. In small percentage of cases biliary fistulas occur, most commonly after leakage from cystic duct stump or accessory bile ducts - Luschka's duct. We report of a patient who had episodes of abdominal pain following routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute calculous gallbladder. Results of conducted diagnostics verify the presence of biliary fistula caused by obstruction of bile pathways by stagnant pus and microcalculi of common bile duct, with development of biloma presumably caused by pressure injection of contrast material during ERCP procedure...

Eponyms are very commonly used in medicine. Eponyms serve the goal of honoring scientists who have made important contribution to medicine. The article describes widespread and seldom used eponyms found in biliary structures. Priority of discovery of the "Heister's valve", "Luschka's ducts", "sphincter of Odd", "Vater's papilla" was established. An author provides biographical sketches of physicians in whose honor some anatomic entities were named.

Bilomas resulting as a complication of cholecystectomy are often due to a leak from an inadequately secured cystic duct stump, an accessory bile duct or a duct of Luschka in the gallbladder fossa of the liver. Occasionally, bilomas may have an unusual presentation. We describe here a rare case of biloma in the lesser sac after an uneventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic treatment is effective in the treatment of patients with bile duct injury after cholecystectomy. We aimed to investigate the long-term results of endoscopic treatment, factors predicting the recurrence of the stricture, and to determine the optimal endoscopic treatment. METHODS: The study was a retrospective cohort analysis and conducted at a tertiary referral center in patients with major bile duct injury (Strasberg E1-4 and E5 patients with main bile duct injury)...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Cystic duct and Luschka duct leakage after laparoscopic cholecystectomy are often classified as minor injuries because the outcome of endoscopic stenting and percutaneous drainage is generally reported to be good. However, the potential associated early mortality and risk factors for mortality are scarcely reported. The aim of this study was to describe the outcome, mortality, and risk factors for poor survival of patients with type A bile duct injury (BDI) referred to a tertiary center...

OBJECTIVE: Lesions of the cerebellomedullary cistern lateral to the lower brainstem in an area extending from the foraminae of Luschka to the foramen magnum are rare and can be caused by various sources. There is no consensus on an ideal surgical approach. We describe the anatomical features and the surgical technique of the midline suboccipital subtonsillar (STA) approach to the cerebellomedullary cistern and its pathologies. METHODS: The study was performed on three alcohol (ETOH)-fixed specimens (6 sides), and the technique of the approach was highlighted...

Normal notochordal and vascular attrition leaves weak spots in intervertebral discs through which intravertebral prolapse of disc material frequently occurs. Some varieties of prolapse cause somatic spinal pain. Asym-metrical and asynchronous growth of normal vertebral arches rotates thoracic vertebral bodies slightly to the left in infants and to the right in adolescents. Primary vascular asymmetry could cause the observed vertebral asymmetry. Luschka's joints develop in the cervical spine during childhood and give some protection against postero-lateral disc prolapse, but cervical zygapophyseal joints give little protection to the disc in sagittal plane movements...

A 43-year-old man presented with a 3 month history of headache, vertigo and swaying while walking. MRI of the brain showed cystic lesions involving the cerebellopontine angle cisterns, the right perimedullary cistern, the fourth ventricle and bilateral foramen of Luschka with resultant obstruction to cerebrospinal fluid outflow and hydrocephalus. The patient underwent right retromastoid craniotomy with endoscopic third ventriculostomy for cyst excision. The postoperative period was uneventful and he was able to carry out routine activities within a month...

BACKGROUND: The German anatomist Hubert von Luschka gave name to several structures in the human body. One of great discussion is the duct of Luschka, part of the biliary system. There are different descriptions of the duct of Luschka. This might lead to confusion in the debate and as to what therapy should best be provided in case of an injured duct of Luschka. METHODS: We reviewed the literature on descriptions of Luschka's duct and studied the original German descriptions by Hubert von Luschka...

BACKGROUND: Bile leak is a common and serious complication of cholecystectomy with endotherapy being an established method of treatment. This retrospective study presents the 11-year experience of a referral center in endoscopic management of post-cholecystectomy bile leaks. METHODS: During the period between January 2000 and December 2010, records of patients who had undergone endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for suspected post-cholecystectomy bile leaks were reviewed for evidence of clinical presentation of bile leaks, cholangiographic findings, type of endoscopic intervention, procedural complications and post-procedure follow-up...
